When it first showed the symptoms, I thought it must be
something on the Windows side that was holding ArtWorks up.
However, when it *only* paused at Groups and at no other
module, I inferred that it was something on the RISC OS
side that was causing it.

I never leave it running a task like that while in RISC OS.
Of course, it does its own thing periodically without any
bidding from me but I think even Paul Vigay would draw the
line at assuming Windows was ambushing Groups. :-)
